Looking for something new to do while at home during the pandemic? This August, let Discover by Circles.Life tickle your funny bone as they bring you your favourite local stand-up comedians, all from the comfort of your home! Following on from a July of music, Discover Originals now presents a one-night only comedy show featuring local stand-ups Jinx Yeo, Sam See, Jacky Ng, and Rishi Budhrani.
Jinx Yeo has appeared on Comedy Central’s “”Stand Up Asia”” and ABC TV’s “”Comedy Up Late””. He was nominated for the “”Best Comedy”” award at Fringe World 2018, and won 1st Runner-Up at the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition. Perhaps Singapore’s most international comedian, Jinx’s hard-hitting humour has driven his comedy videos to go viral worldwide – earning him over 350,000 followers on Facebook, despite his relative lack-of-fame.
Rishi Budhrani has performed multiple sold-out shows of his signature solo stand-up comedy performances titled: Cannot Means Cannot. He’s also been seen in Dream Academy’s Happy Ever Laughter and Mediacorp’s The Noose and Kakis LIVE. Rishi also hosted a ground- breaking travel series helmed by Singapore Airlines and Singapore Tourism Board titled Unexpected Journeys, which took him to 4 continents and 7 different towns in 40 days. In addition to performing as a comedian, Rishi has written humor columns for Esquire, sketches for TV shows like The Noose and OK! Chope and also for theatre shows, Meenah & Cheena and The Rishi & Sharul Show.
26 year-old Jacky Ng is Singapore’s youngest professional comedian. With a unique sense of style and humor, his wacky stories and observations has made him one of the most popular figures in the local stand up scene. He has performed in comedy shows around Asia and was also the youngest comedian to perform at the Singapore Comedy Fringe Festival 2016. Jacky has also supported international acts such as Stewart Goldsmith, Hannibal Buress and Stephen Carlin at their regional shows.
Finally, Sam See is part of Asia’s new wave of stand-up comedians, entertaining audiences from around the globe for over half a decade with his unique blend of jokes, stories and improvized humour. From Singapore, he has headlined shows internationally, in Melbourne, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, the Czech Republic, Tokyo, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Germany, the Philippines, Italy and Oman. He has also worked with comedians Dara Ó Briain (IRE/UK), Bert Kreischer (US), Gina Yashere (US/UK), Peter Berner (AUS) & Kevin Bridges (SCO).
